HM Inspectorate of Constabulary Review (Home Office Leaks)

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

I am today placing in the Library of the House a copy of the HMIC report into the lessons learned from the recent Metropolitan Police investigation into Home Office leaks.

This report was commissioned by my predecessor. Its terms of reference were:

“Denis O’Connor, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary, supported by his small team of relevant experts, will undertake a review of the lessons learned from the recent Metropolitan Police investigation into Home Office leaks. The review will report to the Home Secretary”.

I am most grateful to Denis O’Connor for his work. It is important his recommendations are now followed up.
